Arctic Monkeys' frontman Alex Turner has said that the band are looking to hire a personal hairdresser to go on the road with them.

Speaking to the Illinoise Entertainer, Turner was discussing his Elvis style quiff, and joked that when the band start touring in a private jet he'd also like to take a hairdresser on tour, to maintain his hairstyle.

He commented: "...hopefully, we'll get to the point – on the way to our private jet – where we tour with our own hairdresser. That's the next rung on the ladder. So what we really need is someone who can look after the wardrobe and cut hair – maybe I can take this opportunity to advertise for that!"

As well as headlining T In The Park 2014, Arctic Monkeys will play two huge outdoor shows in London's Finsbury Park next May. They will play shows on Friday May 23 and Saturday May 24, with support to come from Tame Impala, Miles Kane and Royal Blood. For more information, visit Arcticmonkeys.com.

Arctic Monkeys play:

London Finsbury Park (May 23, 24)
